Mn-Zn ferrites find their application in several electronic devices in electronic industries for different applications. The better magnetic properties of nano sized Mn-Zn ferrite offers to develop technology for low power loss with miniature design of components. This will not only bring revolution in industry but is also a process which will offer high quality product. Synthesis of Mn-Zn ferrite nano powders are done through different processing routes using high purity chemicals. The cost of the product powder can be reduced if it is synthesized using the ore or mineral of any one constituent of the salt required in their synthesis. The present work is a reporting on the synthesis of Mn0.5Zn0.5Fe2O4 using iron ore fines as one of the constituents required for the synthesis of Mn-Zn nano powders.
